Sharon Barton, RDH, founding director of dental hygiene at the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry (OUCOD), passed away following a long illness March 16, 2010, in Frisco, Texas.
She retired in 1970 and was prepared to pursue an MBA at Arizona State University when her friend, Associate Dean Reginald Sullens, asked her to start a dental hygiene program at the new OUCOD. It took some persuading, but the lure of starting another new program, and the fact that the dental and dental hygiene programs would be integrated, brought her to Oklahoma.
Barton shepherded the program up until the moment the new building, OUCOD's current home, was ready, and then retired in 1976.
